    I saw a post on instagram from gie expo of a Ferris fw15 32 inch hydro mower that was along the lines of the exmark and toro 30 inchers. Wish i could give you a link. Has anyone else seen this or know about it? It had a honda engine, and larger tires than the commercial 30s. It looked a little cumbersome like the current 30s but is very intriguing nonetheless .

    Looks like timed blades. How big is the honda?. If hydro and 10hp it will kill turfmaster sales . Must have mulch kit and blades

    From what I’m told it’s a one of a kind machine
    I think dusty is testing the waters to see what kind of reaction they get at GIE

    Looks like yet another garbage attempt at a larger than 21” push mower. Single hydro and heavy probably even worse than eXmark 30push in tight areas.

    Push mowers need to be Light and Effortless to maneuver.

    Should bring back the 32” Hydrocut w/dual pumps/wheel motors.

    Was a decent mower but a bear to maneuver.
